Food Allergy: 11S Seed Storage Proteins

What are they?

11S seed storage proteins are also known as legumin and these terms are often used interchangeably. They are strongly associated with nut and seed allergies.

They are globulin proteins involved in storage of nutrients in the plant.

11S seed storage proteins belong to the cupin superfamily which include a wide range of enzymes as well as 7S and 11S seed storage proteins.
